Saket Kanoria, CEO of TCPL Packaging and the company’s management team with representatives from KBA and IPM ordered three more Rapida 106 with a total of 26 printing and finishing units. The first new Rapida will begin its journey to the TCPL plant in Silvassa in autumn 2016. It features seven inking units and two coaters, produces conventionally as well as with UV inks/coating and will be embedded in pile logistics. A six and a 7-color Rapida 106 with coater are expected to follow in early 2017. One will go to the company’s plant in Haridwar and the location for the other has not yet been decided. The main reasons for the new investment in KBA sheetfed offset presses are the presses’ high output, the excellent support from KBA and sales partner IPM, and KBA’s recognized poll position in UV production.
TCPL Packaging operates three sheetfed offset sites. The third is in Guwahati. The company is accredited with all the usual certificates for quality management and the production of food packaging. Founded in 1990, the packaging printer employs 1,200 staff today. Many of the company’s products have won awards.
Packaging South Asia is a cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which was held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany
